WEEK­END SPORT

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Tv - Peter Ko­goy

AF­TER eight months of pul­sat­ing ac­tion it comes down to this, 90 nerve- rack­ing min­utes of ac­tion in Lon­don tonight that could de­ter­mine whether the English Pre­mier League soc­cer tro­phy heads back to Manch­ester for a 10th time. Stand­ing in the way of the Red Devils is a fired- up Chelsea out­fit. Kick- off is slated for 9.30pm on Fox Sports 2. Equally im­por­tant is the Wi­gan- Read­ing clash on FS2’ s interactive menu from mid­night, with Read­ing des­per­ately try­ing to avoid rel­e­ga­tion and Wi­gan too close to the drop zone for com­fort. The pick of rugby league this week­end is the Sea Ea­gles tak­ing on the Bull­dogs in the NRL, with kick- off at 5.30pm to­day on FS2. Long- suf­fer­ing Carl­ton fans in the AFL fi­nally have rea­son to smile, but can the Blues make it three on the bounce at the ex­pense of the Ade­laide Crows to­day, live on FS1 from 2pm? The Waratahs can ce­ment a play- off spot in the Su­per 14 pro­vin­cial rugby union com­pe­ti­tion with a win over the Sharks in Syd­ney, on FS3 from 7.30pm. The In­dian Pre­mier League cricket con­tin­ues live on Ten with the quaintly named Ban­ga­lore Royal Chal­lengers up against the Ra­jasthan Roy­als from 7.30pm. Read­ers in the Rive­rina will have to do with the West­ern Bull­dogs- West Coast Ea­gles AFL match. The pick of sport to­mor­row is the Dutch round of the world superbikes, with Aus­tralians Troy Bayliss and Troy Corser both well in the run­ning for the cham­pi­onship. The flag drops at 7.30pm on FS2.
